Riverside’s Commercial Energy Efficiency Program

A Boon to Riverside, CA Businesses

Under the Commercial Energy Efficiency Program (CEEP), businesses in Riverside, CA can receive rebates when they upgrade their facilities with eco-friendly products like efficient lighting, Energy Star-rated appliances, and personal computer power management software. For exit signs, the rebate covers $25 per sign or 25 percent of the cost, whichever is lower.

To apply for CEEP’s exit sign rebate program or any other rebate, visit the Green Riverside – Commercial Energy Efficiency Program website, download the application on the right-hand side, and mail in the completed form.

Low Power Exit Lighting

Office buildings can have dozens or even hundreds of exit signs operating year-round. A compact fluorescent sign that uses an average of 17 watts of power will end up costing about $23 to operate per year, which doesn’t sound too expensive. However, there are over 100 million exit signs in the United States alone, and they’re costing businesses about $2.5 billion to operate each year.

Energy efficient LED or photo luminescent exit signs use a fraction of the power – about 1-3 watts instead of 17. For each compact fluorescent exit sign that’s replaced with a more efficient sign, companies will save about $22 per year. Depending on the number of exit signs, small businesses can save hundreds or thousands of dollars each year.

Each exit sign must also run off of battery power in the event of a power outage. Lower wattage signs prolong battery life and avoid costly replacements. LEDs also last about 50,000 hours compared to an average of just 10,000 hours for CFLs and 1,000 hours for incandescent bulbs. Instead of an annual replacement, LED bulbs will only need to be replaced about once every six years, which will save an additional $25 or more over the life of the exit sign.
